Choosing a bong

Last updated on December 27th, 2022

There are many benefits to using a bong to enjoy cannabis. The water in a bong can help you get a good hit, and the design of a bong allows for a more comfortable smoking experience. But there are also several ways to use a bong for cannabis. Here, we’ll show you how to use a bong to get the most out of your experience.

How to Choose the Right Bong

When it comes to smoking, there are a lot of things to consider. From the design of the bong to the material used in it, it can be hard to know which one is the right fit for you. This is where a bong comes in. A bong is an important piece of smoking equipment because it allows you to enjoy the flavors and aromas of marijuana while still getting the nicotine hit that you need. It’s also a great way to relax and enjoy your favorite cannabis strains.

When it comes to choosing the best bong for your needs, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First and foremost, make sure the bong you choose is of high quality. Second, make sure the mouthpiece is comfortable for you to smoke with. Third, make sure the bong has a water capacity that is appropriate for your smoking habits. Finally, make sure the smoking experience is comfortable and smooth.

Choosing The Right Material 

When choosing the right bong there are many factors. First let’s start with materials, bongs come in many different materials.

Types of bong materials

Glass – tried and true it’s the most common and popular. Glass has a clean pure taste because it doesn’t affect the taste of the smoke. Easy to clean but it has some downsides, glass is expensive and fragile.

Plastic – This is probably the next best thing to glass due to its durability and affordability. You could drop this and have little to affect the bong, might spill some water but that’s about it. Only downside about plastics is that it might affect the taste of the smoke.

Ceramic – A great starting material, due to ceramics in general you can have amazing designs and creativity due to ceramic’s malleable characteristics before the oven cure. It would be harder to clean due to the fact you can’t see right through it. Its price is a bit higher than plastics due to all the work that goes into it. Better for a show piece than an everyday bong.

Bamboo – If you are looking for something basic and not plastic this might be the one for you. Very popular in today’s times as we move away from plastics and finding alternative materials that are earth friendly

Metal – more uncommon then the rest but they do make them in metal. It makes a very durable bong but you won’t be able to see when you need to clean it and it might have some effect on the smoke taste. 

The Different Style of Bongs

Straight Tube Bongs – They are simple by design and great for everyday use and easy to clean

Zig Zag Bongs – Since they are zig zag in design it is like have a splash guard so you dont get any kickback from water as you sometimes get from a straight tub.

Beaker Bongs – They are the same as a straight bong but with a wider base, which makes them less prone to tipping over.

Recycler or Multi-chamber Bongs – These bongs may look over the top but they actually serve a purpose. The multi-chamber helps the bong filter the smoke more allowing you to have a clean smooth inhale

Percolator Bongs – These bongs tend to cool the smoke down a lot which allows a smooth hit. It is also very interesting to look at when smoke is filling the chambers. 

 

The Basics of How to Use a Bong for Cannabis

There are a few different ways to use a bong for cannabis, but each is just as good as the next. It’s important to remember that while these may seem like a very simple process, there are several things to keep in mind. There are different types of water pipes for different types of cannabis.

Read on to find out what you should use.

  • Always pick a vessel that you can keep refilling and still give you a good water pipe to smoke.
  • Keep your water tight and hold the bowl level in your mouth
  • The smoke should fill your mouth and lungs as well as travel up and down your throat, then out your nose.
  • Inhale only enough water to take in a large hit
  • Not a lot of water is needed for each long puff.

Get a Good Hit with a Bong

A bong is always going to produce a stronger hit, whether you use compressed air or a water pipe, so that’s why a good quality bong is always something to look for when it comes to choosing a way to consume cannabis.

A good quality bong should provide a large enough hit to get you through the night, so that you can feel high without getting uncomfortable. Water pipes can often produce a more pleasurable experience, but the water may evaporate more quickly, which means you need to concentrate even more on your inhale.

You should also look for a bong with water that is always relatively clean. A lot of water pipes use dirt and other bacteria to get the water to form a cloudy liquid. They can make the experience less pleasurable if you swallow the water when the hit is strong.

Enjoy the Smoking Experience with a Bong

When you’re smoking cannabis, you have a few options when it comes to your smoking experience. You can smoke with a pipe or water pipe, joint, vaporizer, or bong. Each of these smoking experiences is slightly different, and they each have their benefits.

An experienced stoner can enjoy any of the smoking experiences, but a first-timer might not get a great hit that will have them going back for more. With a bong, you can smoke more evenly and take the experience for what it is. If you’re just starting out, you can get a better hit if you smoke it in a single round.
